Sorry.  I seem to have been confused, and have misled you.  I too have
Firefox-52.9-ESR on my WinXP VM; it was my Win7 VM, on which I upgraded
to Firefox-86.0.

Notwithstanding my confusion, on WinXP, Firefox-59.2 can successfully
display the MinGW FRS pages on OSDN.net, and download their package
content; Internet Explorer can do neither, and mingw-get, which depends
on the same underlying WININET.DLL, cannot download packages.
